INNER CITY MELBOURNE HOME
A peaceful and relaxing home in an inner city Melbourne suburb with easy access to the sights of Melbourne. Very close to CBD, Newport Lakes and the Williamstown beach. There is a bus stop 60 seconds from the front door and a train station a short walk away that is only a few stops into the CBD.
My home is a ‘No smoking, No drug and No alcohol’ home. (If you smoke you can smoke outside.)
I am a professional (I work from home), mid 40's woman, engaged and soon to be married. I naturally gravitate towards people who are open-hearted, generous of spirit and self aware. Most of the people I surround myself with are making a positive difference in the world or are on a spiritual or personal growth journey of some kind.
I value heart felt, emotionally intimate connections with friends and associates. I enjoy people. I love going out listening to music, theatre and dancing. I am fit, eat healthily and appreciate being outdoors in nature.
Upon arrival you are required to:-
- Fill in a Personal Details form.
- Have your passport photocopied.
- Pay a fully refundable key deposit of AUD$30.00.
If you think you can make a positive contribution in my home and that we have some things in common then please get in touch.
Please make an initial enquiry by email and...
(a) State what skills and experience you have;
(b) State how you believe you can assist me through the Workaway exchange;
(c) State the date you would like to arrive and the length of time you would like to stay.
You are most welcome to leave your phone number and I will call you.
Please do not enquire without a photo or without stating how you believe you can assist.
Check In/Arrival Time at my home is between 1.00pm and 4.00pm. It is possible an arrival time outside of this can be negotiated so please ask and I can let you know one way or the other.
PS: In terms of fitting into my home, my personality is most compatible with strong, capable, independent men or women who have a gentle and loving heart. I am not compatible with people who have a submissive personality or are overly passive.
